The First International Jerusalem Bach Festival opens on March 17th and ends on March 21st, the anniversary of Bach’s birthday.

 

The Festival program will focus on J. S. Bach (1685 - 1750), one of the greatest musicians of all time. It will explore the influence of Bach on the composers of his time and on subsequent generations, including contemporary composers.

 

The Festival is a multi-cultural event including concerts, lectures, a symposium and tours of Jerusalem, one of the most exciting and many-faceted cities in the world.
